It has been a long time since I've taken a tea time for me!  
Today I decided to just stop and take a tea break
 I took a tray to the screened porch
This teacup is from my new friend Patti her blog is
We met doing teacup exchange and really enjoyed getting to know each other...I love this cup with beautiful pink roses on it
I brewed a small pot of the tea she sent me
Organic Earl Grey.....wonderful!
Yummy butterscotch tea cookies also from Patti
 On a sweet vintage plate
 This small cream and sugar was purchased at an Antique Mall several years ago for $4, I love them!
Join me won't you?  I have another cup for you!
I am linking up with these fun parties

Don't forget my current giveaway HERE

It's very nice to treat oneself every once in awhile! Those tea cookies look wonderful - I'll have my tea with just a little milk please - and the milk first, if you don't mind.

Hi Linda, I'm having a cup of tea, as I write this comment. However my styrofoam cup and not as appealing as your cute vintage cup and plate. Love the plate the cookies are on! Hope you are having a fun summer! Can't wait to see you all again.

A Hopeful Heart said...

Oh, what a lovely tea tray you made up. I hope it was a rejuvenating and refreshing time for you, and I hope the cookies were as good as they looked.

That teacup swap really was loads of fun, for not only did we each get a pretty new teacup, but we each got a sweet new friend.

Have a wonderful day, my dear.
